DOGGIE PROTECTIVE SERVICES

Crayon: Charcoal

English Pointer
13 weeks old - Short coat - Male


The Crayon Litter is 13 weeks old. Their mom is Crayola. She weighs about 60lbs. She is a English Pointer mix. We were called when the puppies were about a week old and asked if we could take in Mom and her 10 puppies. There are 6 boys and 4 girls. They are all going to be big dogs. So, not to speak ill of mom but well, she probably had more than one boyfriend. It appears there was more than one Dad in this litter...We have no idea what breed(s) Dad(s) were...Some look a little like hounds. One even looks Dalmation. We have the Target dog lookalike too! This is truly a litter that is "mixed".

Mom is very sweet. She was initially protective of her litter which we always expect but even from the beginning she allowed her foster family to take care of her and the puppies. She was so skinny when she came in and we have successfully put weight on her even as she took fabulous care of her puppies. Her puppies are well adjusted and social little pups. They love to play with toys. They love to drag them all over. They love to make a mess X 10! They know how to use the doggy door.

These puppies are going to be amazing pets for families who want big dogs. They will be walking, running, hiking and biking kind of pups. They will be ones who can go to the dog park or doggy day camp. They will gladly join a home that has another dog that is well behaved so they can model their behavior after them--much like they have Mom and the dogs in the foster home. The puppies have lived with cats so they are cat friendly.

If there are children in the home they need to be over the age of 7. We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. We will gladly consider all very thorough applications that demonstrate a commitment to training, an understanding of dog behavior and who put the time and energy into demonstrating their dog knowledge.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
